Darker nights mean that it is more important than ever for families to install proper lighting in outdoor spaces. Although summer is the best time to decorate the garden with solar lights and string lights,  Outdoor Flood light  should be installed during the winter to increase safety.

With the development of lighting technology, floodlights have become more and more complicated in terms of activation methods. In addition to the standard on/off switch that can be used to manually activate the light, you can also find a floodlight with a motion sensor that illuminates when someone (or something) passes through its sensor range. Or, when the ambient light drops to a certain level, the “Dusk to Dawn” floodlight will automatically turn on and then turn off again when the sun rises.

Traditionally, most outdoor floodlights use halogen bulbs, which save 20-30% more energy than older incandescent bulbs, but due to their energy-saving potential, they are not close to LED bulbs. In this case, the biggest advantage of the LED bulb is its long service life. If the halogen bulb can last for about 2,000 hours, the led floodlight can last for 30,000 hours or more. In addition to the cost of extending life, this means you don't have to change the floodlights (or their bulbs) often. This alone is the reason for upgrading to LED floodlights.
